Description of  Van Wyck Meadows and Glen Communities 
   The Van Wyck Community is composed of The Glen single family homes and The Meadows town homes situated on 178 acres in the Town of Fishkill, New York.  Just over an hour north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley, the community shares proximity with many of the cultural attractions of the Region.  Cultural venues include The Bardavon Theater in nearby Poughkeepsie and the famous Chance Theater in the downtown mall area.  The Dia Arts Center in Beacon is a recent addition to the arts community.  The Mid Hudson Civic Center offers concerts and performances by major musicians, solo performers, comedians, and hosts several trade shows.     

   Close to renowned educational institutions such as Vassar College, Marist College and the State University at New Paltz, community students have numerous academic opportunities from which to select.  The renowned Culinary Institute of America is nearby in historic Hyde Park.  The Poughkeepsie Journal, the oldest newspaper in the state, serves the region.  Radio stations share airwaves and broadcast from Manhattan to Woodstock.

   Industrial innovation continues in the region with the IBM East Fishkill campus, Poughkeepsie campus, and T J Watson Research Center in nearby Hawthorne.  Transportation includes access to Interstate 84 with connections to points East and West, the Taconic State Parkway to points North and South and the New York State Thruway.  With the expansion of Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, the region is expected to become a major airline hub, and share arrival / departure traffic as a center for air travel.  The Hudson River is a tremendous asset to the region, and offers a beauty unique to the valley.  The United States Military Academy at West Point is only 40 minute away.  The drive along Storm King Mountain is an absolute must on any visit to the area. 

   The Van Wyck Glen and Van Wyck Meadows are sited on Merritt Boulevard in the Town of Fishkill, Dutchess County, New York.   A Toll Brothers Community, amenities include a Club House with heated pool, tennis courts, and basketball courts.  McGrath Management serves the community as property manager and oversees maintenance of both the Glen and Meadows.  The homeowners also enjoy a bi-annual newsletter, The Van Wyck Gazette, and website,
